Brief Directions: Drive north out of Banff on Mt. Norquay Road. Just before getting to the Trans Canada Highway turn left on the Vermilion Lakes Road. Stop anywhere along the three Vermilion Lakes at a viewpoint that interests you.
Best Season: Autumn
Description: Last Light on Mt. Rundle.Photo taken from Vermilion Lakes. It was cloudy and drizzling all afternoon and evening. There were a few people at the Vermilion Lakes but everyone gave up on the light and left except for me and one other photographer. Right before sunset the clouds parted and sunlight climbed the flanks of Mt.Rundle. As the band of light grew narrower the light became more intense until it was at its best just before leaving the upper ridges and then it was gone.
